Overview

Overview

 The Panasonic VariCam 35 Camera Kit includes the AU-V35C1 4K Camera Module with PL lens mount, AU-VREC1 Recording Module, AU-VCVF1 Color Viewfinder, and AU-VSHL1 VariCam Shoulder Mount Module. The 4K camera module unit (AU-V35C1) docks to the recording module unit (AU-VREC1), which is also interchangeable with Panasonic's AU-V23HS1 2/3" B4 Mount unit (not included, sold separately).

A detachable control panel features a 3.5" LCD display for menu operation or as a live/preview monitor. Frequently used settings can be accessed with the keys and dials surrounding the display screen. Easily install accessory mounting plates on top of the unit, or plates/risers on the base via a flat design. Female mounting threads are provided on the sides of the unit and the handle for additional accessories.

NOTE: This system flexibility can be expanded using an umbilical cable between the Super 35mm 4K camera and the AVC-ULTRA recorder (not included) to provide box camera functionality for jibs, cranes and other remote camera needs. Contact your salesperson for more details.

 

The Panasonic AU-V35C1 VariCam 35 4K Camera Module - PL Mount features a Super 35mm MOS Sensor, offering 4K (4096x2160) and UHD (3840x2160) resolution and boasting wide dynamic range, high sensitivity with low noise, and a cinematic depth of field to suit a wide variety of production needs. With a dynamic range of 14+ stops, the image is accurately rendered over the entire area to capture even dim scenes without compromising picture quality. Panasonic's use of V-Gamut and V-Log offers V-709 gamma with a tone suitable for preview monitors as well as broadcast quality content for TV.

The VariCam 35 delivers two native ISO settings (800 and 5000) to achieve high sensitivity and low noise. Two dedicated analog circuits are implemented on each pixel of the imager for dual native ISO before gain processing. This achieves the required high sensitivity and improves low-light shooting by maintaining a realistic mood. With a full-size sensor, the VariCam 35 can record in 4K (4096x2160) and UHD (3840x2160). It also supports AVC-Intra2K444/422 for 2K recording and AVC-Intra444/422/200/100 for HD recording.

This camera records approximately 180 minutes of 4K 4:2:2/24p video, 24-bit/48kHz/4-channel high-quality audio, and metadata. Variable frame rate recording falls in the range of 1fps to 120fps. Both Overcranking (slow-motion) and undercranking (quick-motion) effects are possible, plus the frame rate can be adjusted while shooting.

In camera color grading (3D LUT/CDL) is possible with either the VariCam 35 control panel or 3rd party software. With two independent recorders (Main Recorder and Sub-Recorder), you can record in two formats and codecs and select from V-Log/V-709/Grading. This delivers an ungraded V-Log/4K master and a graded HD daily file can be captured simultaneously. This provides main data for production purposes, plus an HD file for broadcast or preview. All files contain common metadata.

 

The Panasonic AU-VREC1 Recording Module is a modular recording system designed exclusively for use with the VariCam 35 4K and VariCam HS 2/3" camera heads, both of which are separate from, but dockable to, the recording module itself. This enables users to quickly switch between the PL mount, Super 35mm 4K VariCam 35 and VariCam HS 2/3" B4 Mount camera head as needed. The camera head docks to the recorder without any cable connection. The rugged docking mechanism allows easy docking and undocking in the field, without having to use a screwdriver.

The control panel on the recording module has a built-in 3.5" LCD display panel. It can be used as the display for menu operation and also can be used as a live/preview monitor. The keys and dials are laid out around the display for quick and accurate operation so frequently used settings can be accessed directly.

NOTE: Using the Panasonic AU-VEXT1 Extension Module (not included), the camera head and recorder can also be positioned at separate locations and connected with a cable (not included). This lets you mount only the camera head to a crane, adding flexibility to your camera configuration. Extension cables (not included) are available in two lengths: AU-VCBL05G (5m) and AU-VCBL20G (20m). Contact your salesperson for details.

 

The Panasonic AU-VCVF1 Color Viewfinder is a high resolution EVF for the Panasonic VariCam 35 and VariCam HS.

Features: 

  • High-resolution 0.7" 1280 x 720 OLED panel shows a wide field angle with viewfinder magnification of 0.78x
  • Large-diameter 38mm eyepiece lens offer comfortable viewing with minimum vignetting
  • Optical zoom and advanced focus assist function

 

The Panasonic AU-VSHL1 Shoulder Mount Module is an optional shoulder mount for the Panasonic VariCam 35 and VariCam HS. The module can be adjusted forward/aft up to 110mm, to accommodate a range of lenses.
